Hi friends! Creativity is a funny thing, the more you use it the more you have! If you don’t create often it can be hard to think of things to make when you sit down to craft. I am like that with jewelry if I haven’t made any in a while but I had the urge to play with beads the other day so I decided to get inspired from a kit! The necklace and earrings below can from the “Jaded” Annie’s Simply Beads Kit-of-the-Month Club. Everything I needed was right in the kit so I grabbed my 4-in-1 pliers (they send you those pliers, a bead mat and beading guide booklet for free when you subscribe to their kit club) and I sat on my porch on a beautiful summer day and beaded this! By the way this video is sponsored by Annie’s Simply Beads Kit-of-the-Month club! Click the link to get first kit for $9.99 (that’s 50% off) and the three free gifts I mentioned above! Use coupon code “FRUGAL”.
After making this project I decided to dig through my bead stash and come up with something similar using the basic layout of the pattern in the kit and I made this:
I like sparkly, chunky, glass beads in crazy colors so I went with those! I kept my earrings rainbow themed but didn’t put the on the chain because I thought my chunky chain would be too heavy. I also had a kit with 5 pairs of earrings that were great for quick fun projects and gifts and I also decided to use them as a jumping off point to create more earrings with my stash. Watch the video and then grab your beads to see what you can make!
In the below photos you can see the earrings I made next to the inspiration pair from the Annie’s Simply Beads Kit-of-the-Month Club!
